The screenshots don't do it justice, it's quite good!

Nice game, the lines are a neat concept. Became very hard at level 5.

Neat little shooter! About halfway through level 6, enemies started spawning so quickly that I didn't have enough firepower to match them. The real killer is getting stuck on a black line, though :)

Nicely executed and a fun game, would play again!

Very good looking, and a nice idea... Only criticism is that the movement is a bit stiff... More inertia and quicker movement would have made it more fun for me...

Simple graphics but the gameplay is really fun and exciting. I wish the power-ups were slightly more different tho. Otherwise, awesome game!

Liked the game, but lines are the real killers! It's easy to get permanently stuck on them.

Nice simple game. I would have been nice if the upgrade menu paused the game. The artistic style was very nice.

Nice game. Short preview of Level 10 "OMG, so many circles shooting at me at once! So many circles.....", The upgrade menu should really pause the game. Still like the additions of the lines.

Fun, simple shooter. The lines crossing through were surprisingly fun to work with and around, and the add-ons were a nice addition.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
